Belgrade, June 11, 2021 – A Covid-19 screening center opens at Nikola Tesla airport in Belgrade under the management of BELGRADE AIRPORT doo, member of the VINCI Airports network and in cooperation with the government of the Republic of Serbia and the Republic Health Insurance Fund (RHIF). Thanks to the test center, passengers departing, arriving and transiting to countries requiring a negative Covid-19 test, as well as all interested citizens and foreign citizens, can now be tested and obtain results at the airport itself, enabling safer and more efficient travel. .
Open 24 hours a day, the testing center is located at Terminal 1 of Belgrade Airport and provides testing services for the SARS-CoV-2 virus, as follows:
Real-time PCR test, with results available to the user by email within 120 minutes of collection;
Rapid test for the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, using rapid antigenic tests, with results available to the user by e-mail within 60 minutes maximum after collection;
Test results are published in both languages, Serbian and English, and sent to passengers by email. The test center also provides printing services, while access to test results is only available to authorized personnel of relevant public institutions. It is important that all passengers are well acquainted with the updated and applicable regulations before traveling to the selected country, as each country sets its own rules and requirements for entering and staying in its territory during the pandemic. The price of the tests is equivalent to the level prescribed by public institutions for such tests in Serbia and amounts to 3,500 RSD for an antigen test and 9,000 RSD for a PCR test.
Payment for tests must be made prior to arriving at the check-in point. Payment can also be made at the designated counter of the post office – “Post of Serbia” located on the ground floor of Terminal 1, every day of the week, midnight to midnight. Registration for the tests is done at the registration point located near the payment counter or can be done electronically, via the official “e-Uprava” portal.
Passengers are requested to pay particular attention to the time required for processing and issuing results. Thus, from the moment of swabbing, they have 120 minutes until the delivery of the PCR test results and 60 minutes until the arrival of the antigen test results. All this is especially important when planning the arrival time at the airport before the scheduled departure time, because in addition to the time required for payment, check-in, testing and issuance of the results of the PCR / antigen test, it is necessary to allow sufficient time for check-in and all other procedures at the airport necessary for the completion of your flight.
‘BELGRADE AIRPORT doo, in cooperation with the competent health establishments, organized tests at its site, as part of the testing project organized at all border posts in the Republic of Serbia, in order to further strengthen health measures existing against COVID-19 set up at the airport and offer a new service to customers, which greatly facilitates travel. Testing at airports is certainly helping to restore confidence in travel safety and helping the aviation industry and the economy gradually emerge from this crisis, ”said François Berisot, CEO of the company.
The tests are carried out by authorized state institutions, the Institute of Public Health of Serbia Dr Milan Jovanovic Batut, Institute of Virology, Vaccines and Serums Torlak, Department of Biocides and Medical Ecology, University Clinical Center of Serbia, Institute of Microbiology, Faculty of Medicine, University of Belgrade, Directorate of National Reference Laboratories, Institute of Molecular Genetics and Genetic Engineering, University of Belgrade
